Patriots vs. Dolphins score update: New England ahead, 7-0, after one

Just minutes after learning of the Houston Texans' defeat at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, the Patriots took the field against the Dolphins with the intent of earning a first round bye-week.

The offense successfully drove the ball down the field on the game's opening possession but failed to convert on a 4th down and seven from the Miami 24-yard-line.

After the teams traded punts, the Dolphins would turn the ball over on a Steve Gregory interception of Ryan Tannehill. Just a couple of plays later, Tom Brady would connect with former Miami wide out Wes Welker for a 9-yard touchdown reception.

Throughout the first quarter, the Patriots' defense has seen success in the pass-rush, most notably on a key sack by Brandon Deaderick.

As the quarter was coming to a close, the Patriots were beginning a drive into Miami territory near the 50-yard-line. The possession has been keyed by big catch-and-run receptions for Danny Woodhead and Wes Welker.
